Lauren Scruggs Update

Since being released from the hospital after walking into an airplane propeller, Lauren Scruggs’s recovery has not been an easy one

Even though it’s been two months since Lauren Scruggs walked into a plane propeller and lost her arm and eye, this last week was the most difficult for the 23-year-old model so far, her mom writes on her blog.

“We chalked up this past week as one of the toughest yet,” Cheryl says. “You would think that things would be on the upswing, huh? They are in some ways. She is progressing well, physically, but we have now entered into working through the 5 stages of grief. We have experienced a little of this along this journey, but we now face it head on. Hard? um excruciating”

She adds, “It’s healthy, yes. It’s necessary, yes. But it’s brutal.”

Lauren was on a joy ride on a tiny plane in Texas, when she exited the plane and accidentally walked into the whirling propeller. She was released from the hospital a little more than a week ago.

“I feel like such a debbie-downer; not being my upbeat, positive self, And I find it hard to write and put on paper what we are really experiencing, Have two months really gone by? Did Christmas really come and go? Is it really 2012?” Cheryl asks.

“Hard to believe it’s been 2 months since it all happened; sometimes it feels like a day; sometimes it feels like 5 years.”
